During his appearance on Jay Leno last night, President Obama admitted that he struggles with math above a 7th grade level.

Leno read the president a question from a viewer asking him what subject was the most difficult to help his daughters with, while doing homework.

“Well, the math stuff I was fine with up until about seventh grade,” Obama said. “But Malia is now a freshman in High School and I’m pretty lost.”

“Fortunately, they’re great students on their own.” Obama said proudly and joked that when their homework gets really difficult he brings over a physicist from the Department of Energy to help out.
